Basic Hut/bivvy as described by DOC is actually a very comfortable, ex research station, lockwood cottage with three tier bunks to sleep six. Its outstanding feature is an outdoor wood fired hot bath. The bird life is prolific - wekas prowl the clearing, kiwis are often heard calling at night.

And it can rain! Average rainfall is over 6m per year.
